21 December, 2012: Hello everyone,
I see you’re all still here, despite today, the 21st of December, being the day the world is supposed to end. Well, I’ve got good news and bad news. The good news is that the world is not going to end.
The bad news is that Jabberwocky is.
After much consideration, I have decided this—the “end of the world issue—is the last issue of Jabberwocky. Is this a final closure? Most likely. Though I hate to say we’re gone forever, at this time I can make no promises or even conjectures about a future return.
The reason is simple. It is time for me to focus on my own writing again.
This was not an easy decision. This little zine has been a part of my life since 2006, when my story, “The Trickster in my Belly”, was chosen by then-editor Sean Wallace. We have published some amazing stories and poems over the years, and the work on this website will remain here for anyone to read.
Before I go, I must thank the authors who submitted work to Jabberwocky, and to those readers who have returned month after month, sharing their enjoyment of the stories and poems found here. You have all been very much appreciated, and I wish you well, wherever this new world may take you.
